Music has been a journey revolved around mediation.


Much of my current music has been inspired by the abstract paintings of Gina Parr, Michel Keck, and Jason Twiggy Lott. 


The creation of music that represents the still, yet intricate textures of abstract art have provoked my interest

in the idea of sound sculpture as a sonic medium in which I can create and develop my current work. 

The integration of formal parameters is derivative of the artwork itself, but only as an initial framework that fluctuates 

as the piece reveals itself through the materials imposed upon that structure. 


The beauty of small, fragile moments are integral to the concept of my work. Providing space and time to investigate the entirety of these

moments; from the timbre and spectral nuances to the physical technique and performance informs my current pieces.


My earlier work explores ideas of program and gesture. From directness to obscurity, many of these earlier inspirations

have offered important introductory elements into the narrative that has been my journey to the music that 

I compose and explore today.
